The New iPhone is Here!

New technologies are a common theme here at Bibliowhining. I'm not anti-technology, but I like to question things. For example, why does my tape Walkman from the early 90s still function while these new phones and MP3 players and such break after fewer than five years? Why are so many people okay with that, rewarding shoddy craftsmanship with repeat purchases from the same company? And why is manufacturing and throwing away plastic products year after year considered more "green" than a book or record album that you'd keep forever, sell or give away to a friend? Why do we buy things we don't need with money we don't have to impress people we don't like? Anyway, here's a quick comic about the new iPhones.
